Star Trek's Bones

The Skeletal Spotlight shines this time on:
Star Trek's "Bones"

"I wonder why they imprisoned a med-school skeleton?"
It isn't October in a Star Trek Fan's home without a screening of "Catspaw," the Halloween-themed episode of the original series. I have fond memories of this one from when I saw it as a kid about 9 years old. It was close to Halloween when they showed it, and I thought it was one of the neatest shows I had seen.

Over the years, I collected a lot of newspaper and magazine clippings related to Star Trek. So, rather than let them continue to yellow all alone in the collection cabinet, I decided to use the blogging medium to share them with other fans who might find them interesting. And believe me, I have a lot to share, from the early 70's when I began snipping and clipping, on through the various incarnations of Trek through the years.

Yes, it's true: I used that picture of a Trek skeleton above to stealthily (yet shamelessly) justify cross-promoting my new (and fourth) foray into the wide, wide world of blogging. Once you start, you just can't stop! And since some of you here might be Trek fans as well, I wanted you to know about it.

And in case you need more of an incentive, I present:

Many a young red-blooded white boy felt their first desire for some cross-cultural relations right here.

This new blog will often reflect my 35-year-long healthy obsession with the Enterprise's diva, Nyota Uhura. Need I say more?

While I'm plugging, check out my other blog Held Over! for a look at the original TV Guide ads for "The Star Wars Holiday Special."

Oh, and here's the promised next installment of my presentation of the strips from "Garfield In Disguise."

Stay tuned all during the Month of Hallowoctober for more!

You know I am supposed to be named for one of the characters on Star Trek - that and a very old song that my grandfather loved.

That's neat! Much better than a name pulled out of thin air. I'm named for Scrooge's cheerful nephew Fred from "A Christmas Carol." Small wonder I love that story so much now...

Ah, Nyota. Star Trek bones indeed.
